Is there nothing rich and privileged kids from CC can't do? All this philanthropy - thank goodness these charitable givers are investing in the right people- rich white CC kids. Great for our local community
My bipolar child was at Devereux Cleo Wallace and suffered greatly from staff who would deliberately antagonize the children, cause them to be upset, then restrain them and lock them in a small room. Staff threatened to retaliate against my son if he kept complaining. I finally pulled him out before he became the next statistic. My report to CPS was not even the only one - someone else had reported abuse to him a week before I did. Horrifying. Stay away from this place. I pray every day for the poor souls still locked in there, because staff and police don't believe them.
As someone who knew older brother from outside view, he should have been allowed to stay. I care about standards, but Kwateng and his younger brother should both still be here. AFA is not a joke and I have seen enough criticisms from people who are clueless just because of criticisms they hear from those who are here. We are changing this place for the better, but baseless criticisms like that slow us down. Yes, some things likely happened that were wrong and they were wrongfully dismissed, but don't exaggerate how bad the whole institution is!
Simply succinct interview.
I was diagonose of Emphysema in 2010 and Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) 3 years ago, our family doctor told me there was no cure but it can only be controled. Ever since then i have been running heather scepter looking for a solution to my problem because i was going to lose my Job if i dont get better, until i ran into this online testimony of Dr ofure who have been curing people of COPD with his herbal remedy i immediately contacted him via their email, to God be thy glory i bought this COPD herbal remedy and was cured within 3 weeks of usage, at last this is a break through for all COPD/emphysema patients contact this herbal clinic via their email firstname.lastname@example.org
The owner of the station is a crook...too bad he got all of this free press.
Love the station, but here are my reason's why the Station is struggling to gain a larger percentage of listeners (below the Christian stations for Christs (pun intended) sake!):
1) Afternoon on air flea market (WTF?)
2) Extremely weak signal, either no bass or no treble depending on distance from Platte location. 1000 watt system and can't get my rear-view mirror to budge.
3) No consistency (what time can I tune in just to hear music? Dunno, which is why I stopped tuning in).
This town has needed a Station of this genre forever. The Beat sucks, Magic sucks. Just like the other rock stations and their 20 song rotations daily. We're in the age of online listening (i.e. Pandora, Spotify), time to step up your game or get to steppin'.
THIS IS NOT A JOKE. TRUST GREAT DR KUMAR. My names are Gina Tom from United States. Great Dr Kumar is really powerful and knows how to do his job perfectly. If not for him i could not imagine what would have happened. My ex was always picking up an argument with me and was always beating me. He started acting strange and funny and left me for no cause for another girl. I thought all hope was gone. I searched for help on the internet and i came across Great Dr Kumar. I saw so many testimonies about him. I was delighted and i contacted him on his email and told him what was going on. He laughed and assured me to calm down that he will help me and that my ex will come back begging me. He did his work and cast the spell for me and in 3 days time, my ex came apologizing just as he told me. Today we both live together and we are even more in love than how we use to be before he left. Contact the Great Dr Kumar for your own help. You can contact him on: email@example.com and his website is:
This is wonderful! because we want God's kingdom to be a reality on the earth, Jesus Christ came to destroy the adversary works and he did it; so today as Christian we have been mandated by God through the finish works of Christ, to destroy demonic power in every culture and make all the nation the disciple of Jesus Christ for the glory of God; so thank you apostle Robert and all others Christian leaders who work in that way, I want to say that we are supporting this idea and we encourage you to go forward, I personally will pray for you and I also declare a spiritual warfare against God's purpose in my culture and every demonic power that will try to stand against God's kingdom on the earth will be broken down in Jesus Christ's name because he(Jesus) gave his life and he paid the prize so the victory has been won. thank you once again, God, bless you abundantly! we love you in the love of Christ.
Great article, thanks, Nat.
I seriously doubt that the county contracted for inadequate amounts of inedible food. What I find most interesting is that the bloggers who routinely find evidence of corruption in every government transaction, are not demanding a full accounting of how our tax money is being spent or accusing any county official of receiving kickbacks from the deal. Instead, they are happy to be ripped off, just as long as the prison inmates suffer from the cruel, if not so unusual, punishment.
In another thread in this same issue of the Indy, and on this same blog, is a report of a study conducted in prisons with real inmates that indicates a link between poor diet and violence. Unless you were being sarcastic, you indicated in the comments section that you agreed with that finding, Mr. Tannim, before you wrote your comment for this piece. Somehow, you failed to put the two reports together.
The cost of hiring extra guards to handle violent prisoners far outweighs the cost of a nutritious diet. And, if you are interested in reforming prisoners, providing a good diet is a good start.
They're inmates, which means that they are not deserving of what they consider to be "good food". If they wanted good food, they they shouldn't have landed their butts in jail in the first place.
They ought to be lucky that they aren't getting Hawkeye Pierce's "river of liver and ocean of fish." Or Soylent Green.
Boohoo. Supposed to be jail. A reminder that you dont want to come back. Sheriff Elder is running his agency efficiently despite constant cuts to law enforcement. You should be pleased with his ability to work within a tight budget and saving law abiding tax payers money.
Asher, is it your job to blow every CSIndy story out of proportion? If you're not Sheriff Maketa with a different user name you might actually have what it takes to become Chief Editor at the Independent; since they enjoy blowing everything out of context (proportion, i.e. Trump).
Sorry, but this story reads as sour grapes from Aramark over losing their long-term deal. It would be wise to keep the prison population well-fed in order to reduce their overall angst, but you shouldn't lose sight of the fact that this is a jail and not a resort.
This is the second big story involving lawyers (see past articles on Terry Malcom). It seems like the profession as whole and state legislatures needs to implement some rules that prohibit lawyers from taking custody of client money. Really they should not have to touch client money.
It has become pretty clear since Elder took office in 2015, that Sheriff Elder doesnt care about the safety of our deputies and the support staff working the floors at CJC. He doesnt care about the Patrol deputies on the streets risking their lives every day. He doesnt even care about the inmates serving time in our correctional facility. It is a disgrace that he and Command Staff are willingly standing by and allowing this to happen. What they are doing DOES NOT define leadership. It is a shame that no matter how many complaints are made or proof is shown, the so-called leadership of El Paso County DOES NOTHING to correct it. All they do is play their blame games, resort to their diversion tactics, or just blatantly ignore the problem hoping it will go away. This is another reason why so many dont stand up and say something. They know if they do, they will be black listed and their pleas will go unanswered.
El Paso County Government, to include the Sheriffs Office, has become a laughing stock in this community. They turn a blind eye to Elder's corruption, his discrimination against women, the promotion of sexual harassment in the workplace, the support of sexual predators (i.e. Commander Rob King and Lt. Bill Huffor), the engagement in financial impropriety, the list goes on. And now as taxpayers, employees of El Paso County, and members of this community we get to keep adding to that list, but see our Commissioners doing nothing about it. When will it end? Does something so bad have to happen before our Commissioners stand up and hold Sheriff Elder accountable? We have inmates that are deliberately being malnourished, deputies being put in unsafe and deplorable conditions, but yet Elder sits up in his Ivory Tower just laughing. Does someone need to die or be beaten so badly as a result for someone to actually stand up and defend us?
It is worth noting that what they have done with the food contract and taxpayer General Fund and 1A money that is being used to pay for it is blatant financial malfeasance and nonfeasance by an Elected Official (or in other words, financial wrongdoing and misconduct, but also the failure to perform an official duty). Lets not forget that simple procurement policies have been violated as well.
We see it every day! When will it end? When will the Commissioners "grow some balls" and hold Elder and his clan of cronies accountable?
They all suck! The sheriff should get someone to go undercover into the kitchen as a trustee and report what the hell is going on! I can guarantee you that it's not good! At $1.01 per meal you can't feed folks well enough especially with these large greedy corporate assholes. I could go and run that kitchen at $1.45 a meal and be over the 3,000 calories easily with good food not that dog chow they try to serve. Let's not forget that a well fed inmate is a happier inmate. I've talked about this for years but they need to get a large greenhouse on site raise chickens etc it can be very affordable and healthy. I've been in thst facility a few times and it's always been horrible. I could fix it in 2 weeks period
My only Son was taken away from ne when he was eight years old by the Colorado Sorings Judicial System, corrupt GAL, Attorneys abd Judges! This happened in 1992! After my Son returned from visiting his Father fir the Summer, he had nightmares and tried to molest the neighbor girl! Thus happened when he was 5! I took him to a counselor and he disclosed to her that horrible things that his father and new girlfriend had done to him! The GAL Marcy Gouge convinced the judge that i had brain washed my child! I lost custody and they sent my Son to live with his Father permanently! I was never proven to have harmed my child in anyway! I fled with him to protect him but was caught two years later and charged with Felony Kidnapping of my own child! He is 30 years old now! He doesn't work, he uses drugs and he is terrified to leave! DHS destroyed my entire family to line their pockets with money! I need an attorney with guts! I want to sue each person involved, dhs, el paso county and the City! Because now my son can tell the story as an aadult. I was unaware that this injustice wad still occuring here! I though it was just those people that were involved then!
